Plan B COVID Update – Friday 9 December 2021

Following the announcement of the Prime Minister earlier this week to move to COVID Plan B, I want to assure all who are visiting Blackburn Cathedral that we are following the guidance issued by the Government and the Church of England.

I can confirm that the Cathedral remains open maintaining our normal opening hours.  Our intention, unless otherwise directed, is for our Christmas Services to go ahead as planned.  Please keep checking the Cathedral website for the latest and most up to date information.

In accordance with Plan B, face coverings are now mandatory within the Cathedral and we will continue to have windows and doors open to maintain good ventilation.  There are sanatiser points throughout the Cathedral and we encourage all visitors to use them.   NHS COVID passes are NOT required to visit or to attend services.

We do hope that during this season of Advent and Christmas you are able to join us for one of our many services or to find time to stop for a moment of quiet contemplation on your own. 

In the words of one Advent songs:

All who are weary

All who are weak

All those who come with no words left to speak

Come let the Son wash the dust from your feet

Come into the light

Peter Howell-Jones
Dean of Blackburn
